A Crash Course on Creativity : Center for Social Innovation (CSI) 05/08/2013

  • Whether we are struggling to generate fresh ideas or staring at problems with no solutions in sight, the spark of creative genius often seems out of reach. In this audio lecture from Stanford Social Innovation Review’s Nonprofit Management Institute, Stanford Professor Tina Seelig discusses how we can unlock our creative genius through a set of tools and conditions we each have in our control—our “innovation engine.” Based on real-world examples and a dozen years of experience teaching courses on creativity and entrepreneurship in the Stanford School of Engineering, Seelig challenges traditional assumptions about creativity to show us how we can seek out the right resources and environment to fuel our innovation engines. She contends that just as the scientific method demystifies the process of discovery, there is a formal process for unlocking the pathway to innovation.

Results Based Community Planning and Welcome to LCSA - Local Community Services Association 05/07/2013

  • Results Based Community Planning implements RBA™ population accountability within a local community. It is …..- Working with a cross section of members of a local community (eg Maitland or Coonamble)- To decide what are the big picture results or outcomes they want for their local community (eg People Belong and are Connected to their Community)- Then work out how they would measure if they had achieved that result (eg Percentage of People with an Effective Neighbourhood Network)- To consider what factors effect that measure and how the local community is going against that measure at the moment- And brainstorm potential partners and potential strategies that could be undertaken to “improve” this measure (eg increase the percentage of people with an effective neighbourhood network)- With some of the strategies having to be Low Cost or No Cost, and some of them Off the Wall because who knows what just might be possible!!- And it is not just about planning, but then getting on and doing it!
  • The Local Community Services Association (LCSA) is the peak body for Neighbourhood Centres in NSW. Formed in 1974 LCSA supports its members' focus on social inclusion and all facets of community development through resources, networking and advocacy.

Interactivity Foundation | Engaging citizens in the exploration and development of possibilities for public policy. and LA2050 - Shaping the future of Los Angeles 05/03/2013

  • The Interactivity Foundation works to enhance the process and expand the scope and health of our public discussions by bringing people together in small group discussions of broad topics of public policy concern. Our Fellows conduct Project Discussions that engage separate panels of selected generalists and specialists on a public policy topic for a year or more of private (or “sanctuary”) discussions to develop and explore multiple policy possibilities, which are then worked into a Discussion Report. We also conduct and sponsor shorter series (3-4 sessions) of small group Public Discussions, which are open to all interested participants and use the possibilities from our Discussion Reports as the starting point for further exploration and development. Finally, we collaborate with certain college faculty to develop and support facilitated, student-centered Classroom Discussions.

Hypercities and Haynes LA Research Collections 03/05/2013 (a.m.)

  • Built on the idea that every past is a place, HyperCities is a digital research and educational platform for exploring, learning about, and interacting with the layered histories of city and global spaces. Developed though collaboration between UCLA and USC, the fundamental idea behind HyperCities is that all stories take place somewhere and sometime; they become meaningful when they interact and intersect with other stories. Using Google Maps and Google Earth, HyperCities essentially allows users to go back in time to create and explore the historical layers of city spaces in an interactive, hypermedia environment.
  • The “Los Angeles Research Collection” empowers citizens and researchers to use the tools of interactive “time mapping.” With HyperCities, you can explore social, cultural, and political history in Los Angeles over time. The site can be accessed from a web-browser in any school, community center, government office, home, and academic setting, allowing citizens to delve into and create their own collections of mappable knowledge and cultural heritage. Community-generated content exists side-by-side with scholar-produced research data, thereby creating new interactions between traditionally separated domains of knowledge.

    About - Citizinvestor 02/13/2013 (p.m.)

    • HOW IT WORKS MUNICIPALITIES SUBMIT PROJECTS TO CITIZINVESTOR.COM. These are projects that have already been scored, department-approved and only lack one thing - funding. Projects range from building a new park to installing speed bumps or adding a few parking spaces to your neighborhood library. The list of these projects for any city is nearly endless. Currently, these projects sit on a long-list behind other budget priorities, especially now when local government budgets are tighter than ever before. CITIZENS INVEST IN THE PROJECTS THEY CARE ABOUT MOST. For the first time ever, we are giving citizens the opportunity to tell government exactly where they want their dollars spent. Citizens can find projects that their local government has posted on Citizinvestor.com and pledge to invest any amount they wish towards the project. Not only can citizens invest in projects from their local governments, but Citizinvestor also gives citizens the opportunity to petition for new projects that local government either hasn’t thought of or hasn’t approved. ONCE A PROJECT IS 100% FUNDED, THE PROJECT IS BUILT!

    Home - Ellen MacArthur Foundation and Crowdfunding Offerings, Limited and Main Street Crowd 01/26/2013 (p.m.)

    • The circular economy is a generic term for an industrial economy that is, by design or intention, restorative and in which materials flows are of two types, biological nutrients, designed to reenter the biosphere safely, and technical nutrients, which are designed to circulate at high quality without entering the biosphere.
    • On April 5, 2012 the Crowdfund Act of 2012 The best solution payday loans was approved. This groundbreaking legislation enables start-ups and existing businesses an opportunity to raise funds for their companies directly from the public who can invest small amounts of money in return for shares in the company. Americans will be allowed to invest in ways that have historically been reserved only for the wealthy. Together, America's entrepreneurs and investors will launch the next great ideas of our time!
    • Main Street Crowd is designed to bring projects directly to the investors who are most likely to be looking specifically for projects of that kind. We do this with our exclusive network of Clowdz™. Here's how it works:
